New Pasco school breaks ground

PASCO, Wash. - Let's call it the light at the end of the tunnel for the Pasco School District. The first fruits of their nearly 47 million dollar bond. The district came up short in recent ballots, but the voters stepped up back in February.

And ground was broken today for elementary school number 13. It's going in on Road 52..just off Powerline. The 15 million dollar school will be a two story, 72 thousand square foot facility, holding 33 classrooms for 750 students.

"We won't have to move kids as many kids from one attendance area to another, it's really going to help in that aspect, the idea of a neighborhood school," said Assistant Superintendent John Morgan.

The school is scheduled to open in the fall of next year.
